PinkFresh Studio Rainbow Floral Birthday

Hello Friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by! I made today’s card a bit ago, but just haven’t gotten around to writing or posting it. To be honest, I’ve been kind of lazy and lacking in motivation. It happens to all of us .. I think! Anyhoo, this card is featuring the PFS Rainbow Floral Washi, and I just have to say that I’m in love with it! Let’s go through the deets!

I began by adhering the PFS Rainbow Floral Washi to a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and using the coordinating die to trim out all of the pieces. I actually made a few panels so that I had lots of pieces to work with.

The background texture of the card panel was made using the PFS Diagonal Stitched Plaid. I love using these types of plates on white, because it just adds the slightest bit of detail and interest without distracting from the focal point of the card.

I used the PFS Stitched Scallop Circle dies to cut two of those. One of the smaller and one of the larger circles. I glued the circles together and adhered them to the panel using foam tape. I then arranged some of the rainbow pieces around the circles using a combination of liquid glue and foam tape for support.

It needed some extra leaves, of course, so I cut a few using the PFS Leafy Branch die and tucked those under the edges securing with glue. I had previously made the sentiment using the PFS Perfect Sentiments Hot Foil Plate, along with Spellbinders Champagne foil. This sentiment is stacked three high for additional support. I glued the sentiment in the center of the smaller circle and added a few PFS Gold Metallic Pearls for good measure. Everything was then, of course, adhered to the card base.

These washi tapes make it so easy to create beautiful cards with minimal effort! If you haven’t tried them, I highly encourage you to do so. Thanks again for stopping by. Don’t forget to stay your awesome, wonderful self!

Simon Says Stamp Mother’s Day Peony

Hello Crafty Lovelies and thanks for stopping by! Have you checked out the newest Simon release, Yay You? What are your favorites? If you know me, I always love florals and sentiments! So, today I’m playing with the Sketched Peony Blossom Foil and Cut set. Let go through the details, shall we?

I ended up making this card for my Mom for Mother’s Day, and of course, she loved it! I began by foiling the Sketched Peony Blossom on a panel of hot press watercolor paper using Spellbinders Champagne Hot Foil. I always end up foiling a few, but only used one in this case, so I have some to use on another project in the future. While I had the machine hot, I also used the PinkFresh Studio Solid Hot Foil Plate to foil the negative of the flower as well.

Once the foiling was complete, I used Zig Markers in 025, 032 and 040 to do some watercoloring. I also used Copic Markers in Y00 and Y08 to add some yellow to the center of the flower. I then used the included, coordinating die to trim the flower out along with the solid foiled flower as well. Those were then adhered together, slightly off center, using liquid glue.

For the background, I used the SSS Stitched Whirl Background and trimmed that from a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I also used the SSS Olive Leaves to cut a couple of those from Neenah 110lb, as well as some gold cardstock.

I went ahead and worked on the sentiment and use the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment, which is from the SSS Better With Mom set. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark Ink on a scrap of Neenah 110lb and heat embossed it using Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder. When that was complete, I used the coordinating die to trim it out.

To assemble the card, I adhered the whirl background to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner and glued the leaves to the panel, while adhering the flower using foam tape for dimension. The sentiment was also adhered with foam tape. And, of course there has to be bling, so I used some PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls for that.

That finishes this one up! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

Simon Says Stamp Good Day Peony Blossom

Hello Friends and thanks for stopping by! The newest Simon Says Stamp release, Yay You, is a gorgeous one, and I’m playing with the new Sketched Peony Blossom Foil and Cut set! Have you jumped on the foiling band wagon yet? I did a while back, and I just love it! Let’s run through the details for today’s card, shall we?

To begin, I foiled the Sketched Peony Blossom several times on some Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using Spellbinders Rose Gold Foil and colored them using Copic Markers R00, R11, R20 and E02 and a Multiliner to add the black detail to the centers of the flowers. While I was foiling, I went ahead and used the PinkFresh Studio Solid Hot Foil Plate to foil the negative pieces as well. Once all the peonies were done, I used the included, coordinating die to trim them all out.

I used the SSS Privet Branch and cut some of those from blue cardstock, as well as some vellum. The background needed some interest so I opted for the PinkFresh Studio Simply Diamonds and adhered that directly to the card base using liquid glue.

To assemble the card, I glued the solid foiled peonies to the colored peonies. I adhered the leaves to the card base using glue, and adhered the peonies atop those using foam tape for dimension.

The SSS Sentiment Strip was glued directly to the flower and I added some pearls to finish it up.

That does it for this card! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty in your space! Don’t forget to stop by and check out the entire Yay You release. Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!

Sketched Floral Hello

Hello Friends and welcome back! I’ve been playing with goodies from the latest Erin Lee Creative release, and made another card using the new Sketched Floral Foil Cover Plate. So let’s run through the details!

All too often I get caught up in the thought that everything needs to be colored. Guess what? It doesn’t! I quite like this white and gold simplistic design on this one! Anyhoo, I began this project by embossing the Sketched Floral Foil Cover Plate onto a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. That provided just a tad of underlying detail.

I foiled the same plate using Spellbinders Gold Hot Foil and fussy cut those images and placed foam tape on the back. When adhering them to the embossed panel, I offset them just the slightest little bit so that you could still see the embossed details. I also added some gold splatter using Royal Talens Light Gold Acrylic Ink for some added interest.

For the sentiment, I cut the Hello Word Die once from gold cardstock and four more times from Neenah 110lb and adhered all of those together using liquid glue. I made the sentiment so thick because it was going atop the flowers that were adhered with foam tape, and I needed it to be quite sturdy.

The sentiment was glued atop the flowers and the panel was adhered to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner. Of course I had to add a little more bling, so I added a few PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls to finish it up.

That does it for this one! I hope you enjoyed it. It’s hard for me not to color all the things, but white and gold are beautiful too! Have yourself a wonderful day, and don’t forget to stay awesome!

Sketched Floral Birthday

Hello Crafty Lovelies and thanks for stopping by! Erin Lee Creative had an awesome release this past Friday with gorgeous floral plates and sentiments, and I’m super grateful and honored that Erin asked me to play with a few of the new products! I’m a little late to the party because I was away visiting my mom, but I got right to playing when I returned home. Today’s card is featuring the gorgeous Sketched Floral Foil Cover Plate along with the Script Sentiments 2 Foil Die Combo, so let’s run through the details for this one!

I began by foiling the Sketched Floral on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using Spellbinders Champagne Hot Foil. Once the foiling was done, I trimmed the panel using PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles, and began coloring the piece. The Copic markers that I used were RV10, RV91, RV93, RV95, G21, G24, G85, Y08, Y17 and Special Black 110. Coloring the background black is a technique that I saw Yana Smakula do a long time ago, and I just love the drama and contrast that it provides.

The Script Sentiments 2 set is gorgeous and this font is so unique! I foiled a few of the sentiments on black cardstock using the same Champagne foil and trimmed them out using the included coordinating dies. I opted to go with the happy birthday sentiment, because you can never have enough birthday cards in my opinion. I went ahead and trimmed that sentiment two more times from black and adhered all of those together using liquid glue.

The sentiment was glued directly to the panel, along with some PinkFresh Studio Champagne Metallic Pearls. The panel was then adhered to the card base using foam tape for a little added dimension.

That finishes up this beauty! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Stop by and check out this gorgeous releases over on Erin’s website! Thanks again to Erin for letting me play with these beautiful products! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

PinkFresh Studio Golden Sunflower Hello

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome back! I hope you’re having a great day! Today’s project is featuring the PinkFresh Studio Sunflowers Washi! I love all of the washi tapes that PFS has to offer, and this one is no different! They are just a great product for making quick, yet beautiful cards! Let’s run through the details shall we?

To begin, I rolled out a panel of PFS Sunflowers Washi Tape onto a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and ran that through the die cutting machine using the coordinating die. You end up with so many pieces of gorgeous flowers and leaves .. enough to make at least two cards worth!

For the background, I used the SSS Detail Pincushion Plate. I used the embossing mat and embossed the panel onto purple cardstock, and then die cut the panel from Neenah 110. I added some liquid glue to the back of the white panel and popped it right into place over the purple panel. It fits so nicely and looks like you spent a ton of time inlaying all the beautiful pieces.

I played around with the placement of the flowers and leaves and guess what, I determined that I needed some additional leaves! I’m not kidding, I think every card that I make needs additional leaves! Anyhoo, I used the PFS Leafy Branch die to cut some of those from gold cardstock.

The sentiment is from the PFS Perfect Sentiments product suite. In this case, I used the hot foil plate to foil the sentiments onto a panel of Neenah 110lb using Spellbinders Gold Foil, and used the coordinating die to trim them out. I did cut it two more additional times and adhered those together using liquid glue.

I began arranging and assembling the flowers and leaves using a combination of glue and foam tape for support, tucking leaves under as necessary. The sentiment was then glued atop the flowers and the whole panel was adhered to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner.

That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! If you haven’t tried any of the PinkFresh Studio washi tapes, I definitely recommend them! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

PinkFresh Studio Hello Brighter Days

Hello Friends and welcome back to my blog! Thanks for stopping by to check out this project featuring the Brighter Days product suite from PinkFresh Studio. I made this card using left over flowers and leaves from a previous project, as well as the negative hexagon pieces from another project. Let’s run through the details!

I began by adhering the negative hexagon pieces together using liquid glue and setting those aside. The previous card using the positive piece can be viewed here. I had cut two PFS Simply Hexagon pieces, one from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, and one from a panel that I had ink blended using PFS Ocean Breeze. To assemble the background, I laid a positive hexagon piece on my panel and somewhat inlaid the negative pieces in there using foam tape. I say somewhat, because the negative pieces don’t actually fit into the space because they are bigger, as they are offset slightly. The positive piece was just used as a guide for placement, and removed once I had gotten the negative pieces situated.

As I said earlier, the flowers are from a previous card as well, and can be viewed here. These flowers were made using the PFS Brighter Days Hot Foil Plate, Stencil and Die suite. I foiled them using Spellbinders Champagne Foil and did the ink blending using PFS inks in Ocean Breeze, Aquamarine, Mint and Fresh Pear. Once I was done with the inks, I used the coordinating die to trim out all of the pieces.

I began my initial card layout, determining placement and the size of sentiment that I was going to be able to use. I opted for the Hello sentiment, which is from the PFS Classic Words Die Set. I die cut that once from polished gold cardstock and twice from black cardstock and adhered all of those together using liquid glue. In determining placement, I decided that I needed some extra leaves, because that’s apparently what I do. Every card seems to need additional leaves! I guess leaves are just my jam! Anyhoo, I die cut a few leaves using the PFS Leafy Branch and added those to my floral placement.

The hexagons were already adhered to the panel, so I began adhering the flowers and both kinds of leaves using liquid glue, tucking the leaves under as necessary. The sentiment was glued to the panel as well. I opted to add a little bling using the PFS Gold Metallic Pearls, because every card needs bling! Ok, so leaves and bling! The panel was then adhered to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner.

That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Have yourself a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

PinkFresh Studio Floral Congrats

Hello Lovelies and welcome back to my blog! I hope you’re doing well and having a fabulous day! Today’s project is featuring the Lush Peonies product suite. I really love how PinkFresh has so many options for creating! This set has a matching stencil to add color, but you can totally choose to color this set with markers or pencils as well and it would be equally as beautiful! So let’s get into the details for this project!

I began by stamping the PFS Lush Peonies on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossing it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I adhered the first coordinating stencil to the panel using masking tape and began adding color, making my way through the set of stencils. The colors that I used were Coral Reef, Passion Fruit, Ocean Breeze and Marigold. I think this turned out to be a really beautiful color combination!

Once the stenciling was done, I used the coordinating die to trim it out. I set that aside while I worked on the background. I used the PFS Simply Hexagons to cut one panel from Neenah 110lb and I cut another panel from a piece that I had ink blended using the same Ocean Breeze ink. I adhered these two together using liquid glue, and off-setting them just slightly so that you could still see the blue portion. Once they were glued, I did have to trim off the excess from the off-set.

For some additional leaves, because we all know that I have to have additional leaves, I used the PFS Curvy Leaves die and cut a few of those. The sentiment is one that I already had in my stash, but it was made using the PFS Perfect Sentiments Hot Foil Plate and die, along with Spellbinders Gold Hot Foil and black cardstock.

Now that I had everything, I was ready to assemble! I adhered the hexagon background to the card base using liquid glue and adhered the peonies and leaves using a combination of glue and foam tape for support. The sentiment was also glued directly to the hexagon panel. It needed a little extra something, so I found this butterfly from my stash as well and added that with a little dot of glue. The butterfly was made using the PFS Small Butterflies Hot Foil Plate and die, along with acetate and the same gold foil as before. Of course I had to add some PFS Gold Metallic Pearls to finish it off!

That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks again for stopping by and don’t forget to stay awesome!

PinkFresh Studio Framed Sunflowers

Hello Friends and thanks for stopping by! I’m so glad that you joined me for my project today, which features the newly released Sunflowers Washi from PinkFresh Studio. I am in love with all of PinkFresh’s washi tapes! They make for such easy, yet beautiful projects! If you haven’t tried them, I highly recommend them! So, let’s go through the details for this project!

To begin, I rolled out the PFS Sunflowers Washi onto a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and ran it through to die cut it using the coordinating die. Once I had all of the pieces, I began working on the design of the card. I used the PFS Diagonal Stitched Plaid to cut a panel of Neenah 110lb, and I used the PFS Stitched Scallop Square to cut those from the same cardstock.

I did some light ink blending on the stitched plaid background using PFS Sunshine ink before adhering the stitched frames using foam tape. I set out to arrange the pieces of washi atop the frames to figure out the placement. Upon doing so, I decided that I needed some gold leaves, so I used the PFS Leafy Branch die to cut that from polished gold cardstock.

I arranged the flowers and leaves and adhered those using a combination of liquid glue and foam tape, tucking pieces under to fill in the gaps. Once everything was assembled, I adhered the sentiment, which is from the PFS Celebrating You product suite. I already had this sentiment made in my stash, but to make it, I used Spellbinders Champagne Foil to foil the thinking of you sentiment, and trimmed it using the coordinating die. I also cut it two additional times and glued all of those together. The sentiment was then adhered to my project using the same combination of glue and foam tape for support.

The panel was then attached to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner, and PFS Gold Metallic Pearls were added for that additional pop of bling!

That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty in your space! Have yourself a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

PinkFresh Studio Brighter Days Floral

Hello Crafty Friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by today! For months I’ve been buying new things from each PinkFresh Studio release and not using them .. my got up and go, got up and went, and took my creativity and motivation along with it. I think it was a combination of the studio being under renovation and not being able to be in there on a regular basis that took it’s toll! I’m hoping it’s back though! Anyhoo, today’s project is featuring the Brighter Days product suite, so let’s go through the details!

I ended up making two cards with the amount of flowers that I created, and I still had extras! So, I began by foiling the PFS Brighter Days Hot Foil Plate on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, using Spellbinders Champagne hot foil. While the foil system is hot, I always like to go ahead and foil a few of whatever I happen to be working on.

Once the foiling was complete, I used the PFS Brighter Days stencil set along with PFS inks in Sparkling Rose, Bubblegum, Sweet Mustard, Mint, Fresh Pear, Ocean Breeze, Aquamarine, Soft Lilac and Lavender to add color to these gorgeous flowers. I then used the coordinating die to cut them all out. I think that I ended up foiling five panels, so I had lots of flowers and leaves!

Next, I die cut two panels using the PFS Sparkling Diamonds, and I die cut one PFS Stitched Scallop Square and one PFS Stitched Scallop Circle using the same Neenah 110lb. Those were then adhered to the background panel using foam tape for dimension. I began arranging the flowers and leaves atop the frames to determine placement. In doing so, I decided that I need some additional white leaves for filler. I die cut the PFS Curvy Foliage a couple of times, as well as, the PFS Leafy Branch.

The sentiments used are from the PFS Celebrating You product suite. There were hot foiled using the same Spellbinders Champagne Hot Foil, and die cut three times and stacked together for dimension. I absolutely love stacking sentiments! I just love the detail and height that it adds!

Now that I have all of the components for the cards, it’s time to start assembling. The frames were already adhered to the background panel, so I began tucking and adhering the white leaves first using liquid glue. Next came the green leaves, and finally the flowers. All of these were glued in place since I already had dimension from the frames. I didn’t want the cards to end up too bulky! I adhered the sentiments using foam tape, added some PFS Sparkling Champagne Pearls to both cards, and attached everything to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner.

That finishes up these cards! I hope you like them, and I hope they inspire some creativity on your part! Thanks again for stopping by! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
